Thanks for the info on Linuxant..
However, I was looking for someone who'd say, I'll ship you the wireless card, and give me access to the appropriate software with instructions... a simple package of cards/software would make the whole process simple. which is what it's going to need to be if you're going to have wireless Linux be used by more than the bleeding edge techs!!

as an off topic...

i'm getting to be convinced that there is a small/lucrative business for
someone to put together the wireless card/software for FC(linux) that they
can pretty much guarantee will work.. and then to sell this as a bundle ....

hell.. i'd pay for it!!!!

this has to be one of the more frustrating things about linux...


Bruce, they have.  I posted this earlier, evidently people aren't
looking at the whole thread.

Go to


And get both their version of the ndiswrapper, plus a matching kernel to
go with it, that has 16 stacks compiled in.  They DO give support, and a
trial timeperiod so that you can decide if the driver works for you
before you pay for it.  The other thing is that they can give you
support, since they charge for these services.

You might find something like the Linksys "Wireless Ethernet Bridge [wet54g]" such as I am using on this FC5 box easier to use. Simply plug it in to your ethernet port and point your browser to to set it up in theory anyway. If that doesn't work you can set it up with the CD provided from Windows if available. I set it up on an XP computer and then plugged it in here where it works faultlessly. Linksys tech support is ok but difficult unless you are fluent in the language spoken in New Delhi, I am not! But then the ethernet bridge worked without help from them, I gave up on their router.
